New Video: Natalie May - Closer

Natalie May made a remarkable entrace into the homegrown music scene when she teamed up with Rudimental to bring us the UK funky banger Sexy Sexy. Now Natalie May is back and has stepped over to the dubstep genre and teamed up with a producer named GKid to bring us Closer. The video filmed in Clapham and Waterloo Bridge, London during a snow spell, I can't help to think how cold she must have been during some of these scenes......

The track has already received major support being played on radio stations such as BBC 1Xtra and featured on many DJ mixes and music blogs, however there has been some criticism floating about the track, that it lacks creativity; the production sounds too similar to Magnetic Man's I Need Air and vocals sound too similar to that of Katy B. I cannot deny that I can understand the angle these criticisms are coming from, but I can still appreciate this track as an original piece of music. Whilst there must have been heavy influence of the aforementioned during composition, what was produced still shows undeniable talent.... As in I am feeling the sound of Natalie's vocals!!!

Closer is released via iTunes on 14th February 2011
with remixes from Ts7, Ramzi, Lucky Charmes and Rudimental
